Youth medal in speech arts and drama for second year in a row

Royal Conservatory of Music gives medals to top students

Two young Terracites won their second gold medals for excellence on their Royal Conservatory of Music (RCM) exams.

Rohan Cooper, 8, and Emily Andrews, 16, both excelled in Speech Arts and Drama; his was for Level 1 and hers was for Level 9. They are both second time winners of the gold medals.

Gold medals are awarded to candidates who have obtained the highest marks in their level of discipline in the province.

At Andrews’ level, she had to successfully complete the co-requisite theory exams, in addition to the practical exam, in order to be considered for a medal.

Both Andrews and Cooper attended the gold medal ceremony held in Vancouver on November 5, 2017. In addition, Andrews was invited to perform at the RCM Gold Medalist Recital in Vancouver, where she performed a Shakespeare monologue on November 4, 2017.

Cooper was taught speech arts last year by Magda Vandenberg.

Andrews’ speech arts teacher last year was Christina Rogers.

She is planning on completing her Level 10 and then getting her Associate of the Royal Conservatory of Music Teacher diploma.

She’s a very passionate speech arts and drama student and already enjoys working with the younger students, says her mom Karen.
